3 drop dead simple tips for job seekers in technology startups

I've been looking for some marketing assistance for RevenueLoan and the process has hi-lighted the most simple of tips for applicants:

  1. Make sure your resume is easily opened by Microsoft Word.  A number of people sent me .pdf file formats which is fine but don't open reliably in Google docs. 
  2. Make sure you say something short and interesting in your email that the gets a recruiter to open your resume.  Remember that job one is converting your email into a resume opener. 
  3. If you're in the technology field, having a vibrant social network on facebook, twitter, and linked in is an obvious filter. I use these three services as screens for all technical and business applicants.
